'Over 100 Iron Maiden fans were arrested before the band's show at Bogota's Simon Bolivar Park in Colombia on Saturday as a riot broke out outside the venue.

Ticket-less fans gatecrashed the 25,000-capacity show, with riot police attempting to quell the chaos as rocks were thrown and tear gas was used by authorities, reports BBC News.'

I, as a Maiden fan who has seen them live, can utterly understand this.

My thread question is this, who would you incite a riot to see?

I'd say Muse, and since I've already seen them live, I'd happily riot to see them again.

Also:

'Of the 111 fans arrested, 40 remain in custody. One police officer, Rolado Arturo Girata Mora, required reconstructive surgery after being injured in the fracas.'

That sounds painful.

That completely ruins a band's gig. So, no. I wouldn't do that, as I try not to be an asshole to those who I admire.

Merely a hypothetical, I don't actually agree with the rioters, I just think it shows how mental fans can be about a band is all.

no, that's retarded, pointless, and never has and will never work.

it also increases the chances of said band never coming to your town again.

Then Thomas and i can sit back, play the guitar, and watch Andrew do funny faces after the show. :]

I don't got the balls to do that

But I'd feel REALLY cool if my band was playing, and people started rioting over us

I think it depends on the band. Some bands will hate it, some will appreciate it. Overall I think it's pretty pointless.

I can understand why, but you won't be able to see them from jail either, will you?

Can I just clear something up, it's not actually going to happen. Don't take it so seriously. Gawd, my rioting arse feels stupid now. (Also, no Paramore pun yet?)

I can understand why. I bet the fans that started it bought tickets from ebay/some dodgy website etc and got turned away. I'd be very ****ed off if that happened to me.

No , when I go to concerts I'd rather buy tix , not send people to the hospital.
#20
I might do it for Flogging Molly if I could not possibly get a ticket. But I'm so tiny I'd probably end up a casualty. And it also seems kinda wrong and disrespectful of the band not to buy a ticket if you wanna go so bad...

Rage Against The Machine.

Zach would probably be the first in line to riot.

You realize they own a bar out by San Diego and play there regularly
